Fiber Optical Extender

The maximum practical length for USB 3.0 cables are 3 meters, but often times certain applications require much longer cable lengths. In response to the growing need for longer connection, Newnex invented the FireNEX-5000™ optical repeater (extender) series to break the 3 meters length barrier of USB 3.0 technology. The FireNEX-5000™ series are the world's first USB 3.0 optical repeaters that is capable of extending data signals over 300 meters without sacrificing signal quality. The device utilizes optical fiber to transfer media, taking full advantage of optical fiber's light weight, EMI free, high flex, high bandwidth and long haul connectivity. This optical repeater (extender) is also highly accurate, durable and secure, making it ideal for Machine Vision, Kinect, and many other applications. The FireNEX-5000™ series include FireNEX-5000S™ and FireNEX-5000H™ that are capable of extending USB 3.0 signal to long distance with power delivery option, up to 300 meters.
